Sir Nicholas Winton

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


He is 103 years old. He was asked why did he saved 669 Jewish children? He told one of the people he saved. He saw a problem and had to help. Thank you Sir Nicholas Winton.



                                    Sir Nicholas Winton

In the mist of war. One man stopped his life.
He tried to save strangers. He brought 669 Jewish children to England.
He had to find money and families to adopt these children.

I heard him speak once. I saw regret he couldn’t save more.
His eyes still filled with sadness even when he was blessed with thousands
he had saved near become of his wisdom and his heart.

I tell people. One person can create a wave of hope. One dream and concern
can save life. Thank you Sir Nicholas Winton.

You hid till the children found out. Their Angel of hope was alive and strong.
Today your name is honored by me and many people in our world.

Men of love and peace who are willing to give all for a strangers.
They give me hope to us trying to do some good. I recommend you
look up this great man. Sir Nicholas Winton.

A wave of hope can spread if we seek calm and peace over hate and violence.

On a statue in Monterey stated.
“A blessed life is when a man is willing to bend down and reach his hand out to help
 the weak and sick.”

Nickolas children are alive and well. Time to remember the men whom saved life.
Not took it.
